This is a great choice for travelers who like extra comfort in their holiday accommodation. The rooms are more spacious than many in Tokyo, and the sake bar, sushi restaurant and classy design make it a popular gay hotel for travelers to Japan. To unwind after exploring the busy city, head to the fitness center or sit and take in your sumptuous surroundings.

Prime Pod Ginza

OK, if you are traveling in a couple or hope to have a bit of a holiday romance, this hotel might not be the best option for you, but for convenience and comfort, this can’t be beaten, not to mention the fact that sleeping in a pod is a uniquely Japanese experience! When you are visiting a city like Tokyo, you won’t want to miss things by hanging around at the hotel, so a Pod hotel welcoming foreigners is a great find.

Citadines Shinjuku Tokyo

This apartment hotel has a range of contemporary studio spaces that act as an excellent base for travelers in Tokyo. It’s popular with gay visitors for its privacy, range of conveniences and sleek design. You have self-catering facilities, but guests can also partake of the hotel’s breakfast in the lounge.

The Tokyo Station Hotel

As you might have guessed from the name, this is highly convenient and luxurious. The spacious rooms are inspired by European style, but the high-tech fixtures all reflect the Japanese sophisticated technology. We love the tall windows, and the bathroom designer products are a nice touch.

This is another option with spacious rooms, all of which are meticulously designed with attention to visual appeal and ease. The bathrooms are some of our favorite spots in the whole hotel, with their sleek lines and brightly colored tiles. The great service and tasty food add to the attraction making this one of the best gay-friendly hotels in Tokyo.

Imano Tokyo Hotel

We know hostels aren’t for everyone, but if you’re on a budget, then you might as well pop in a pair of earplugs and make the most of the money you’re saving. Imano adds to its appeal with its clever and attractive design and its street side café where you can get chatting with people.  Rent a bicycle (if you dare) and explore Tokyo’s streets that way.

We spoke before about the wow factor, and Trunk has plenty of that! The rooms are hip and contemporary; if you’re willing to splash a bit of cash, you could get a suit with a private terrace or balcony. It’s a great option for gay couples as it’s got a very secluded getaway feel.

Sukeroku no Yado Sadachiyo

Sometimes when you’re visiting somewhere, you want to experience a bit more of the country’s traditions, so a hotel like Sadachiyo is a great choice for that. Traditional sliding screens and woven floors exist, and guests sleep on futon beds. The décor is simple but elegant; you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time, but all the sights of modern Tokyo are moments away.

Tokyo Stay Shinjuku

White and blonde-wood furniture and fittings make the compact rooms at this central hotel seem more spacious than they are. It might be basic, but everything you need for a comfortable stay is included, and the gay scene in Shinjuku is close by. Because of this, the staff is welcoming of gay guests.

The Ritz-Carlton

Tokyo’s Ritz-Carlton is situated in the tallest tower in the city, so as you can imagine, the views are spectacular. The location is perfect, with most main attractions just a short walk or subway ride away – at the end of a day’s sightseeing, you can head back to relax in the spa and then try to choose between the eight dining options for dinner.

Book and Bed Tokyo Shinjuku

This is a seriously awesome idea, and if you’re not hunting luxury, we’d seriously recommend this as one of our favorite gay-friendly hotels in Tokyo. Your bed is nestled behind a bookcase (so plenty of reading material is on offer!), and the shared bathroom is clean and spacious. Shinjuku’s gay scene is close by, and they make amazing coffee for the morning after!
